As you walk through the door the atmosphere is warm and inviting. The staff helpful and friendly. The food... try everything! No regrets. They were out of my side and chef chose something I feel was better. Desert is a must. Thank you Popolo.

The restaurant is big, airy, high ceilings, high backed booths, large open central floor, small but nicely formed bar. Staff are friendly and smiley. Pizza was really good but not totally outstanding. It felt very pricey. The bread was lovely and we asked for an...More
